Cards For Little Hearts


I've put the blog hop banner at the top to attract you guys in - hopefully - LOL!!


In addition to the blog hop prize and the prizes that Christina will be picking from the card donations, some of the ladies taking part in this blog hop have some CANDY for you to win as well - INCLUDING ME!!

The full blog hop list is further down the post but the person you need next on the list is 

So onto my card.  A little while ago I created Snowmen Selfie some of you should have picked it up as a freebie.  It's on my challenge blog.

I've coloured the image with ProMarkers and polychromos pencils
I used black soot ink from Tim Holtz on the edges and then distressed it, it was then mounted onto some black card.

Papers are from Maja Design and JoyCrafts, a bit more black card and a couple of scraps of left over paper (I've LOTS of these to use up).  I've added some film strip from Tim Hotlz, a couple of tiny cameras and a couple of sentiments from Scrapienic.

I then decided to go mad with a while gel pen and add lots of dots for snow :D

Happy hopping lovelies!

Your adorable and fun card made me giggle! I can just picture a bunch of snowmen gathered around for a selfie!! The children will love it too! Thanks for participating in this wonderful card drive for the children!

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Andrea! I love that snowman selfie image, ESPECIALLY in those fabulously bright colors. The little camera-film details on the right are darling! Will definitely delight a child's heart.

Coincidentally, I published a post this morning prior to our blog hop using one of your images as well! It was a pleasure using it, too. Thanks for contributing to the card drive!

hugs,

Lov how you coloured up the fun Snowmen gang.xx

CHRISTINA HOR said...

HA! So it's proMarkers and polychromos pencils. Not Copic. No wonder I can't achieve this gorgeous look. Maybe I should give up copic coloring and switch to these medias instead? LOL. You will have to educate me about these items when you have some free time Andrea. And I just love these snowmen selfie. They're probably the most cutest bunch of snowmen I have ever seen. So full of joy and fun. When I first saw them though, instantly I thought it would be neat to create a winter scene card with them...having them looking into a house through a window from outside because of how they all squeeze together. But I absolutely love your layout here and the colors choice! There a sense of warmth, joy and peace just looking at your card Andrea. Beautifully colored and composed.

Andrea, thank you so much for giving me a hand with this blog hop, for sharing this awesome blog candy prize AND for help sponsoring the card drive's prize as well. You are so dear! Thank you! Andrea, may you have a beautiful and blessed Thursday! Hugs.
